Definitely going to give it a try. I'm going to pick my weights up from the guys house that I let use them. I'll update tomorrow if I make it to the gym!

Well today I took my wife out to a movie and to dinner. We watched that "Silent House" movie, which was a complete waste of time by the way.

Anyway, I stopped by an MMA place and told them that my wife and I had considered moving closer to the area (it's about 40 miles away right now). I told them I had no interest at all in actual MMA, but they also offer BJJ two training days per week and compete around the state, so I told him in a few months when we move up there I'd love to start competing in that.

I'd like to compete in the 175lb weight class in both powerlifting and BJJ. I don't know if I've mentioned this on here yet, but I used to box amateur. I ended up suffering what they call "the boxers fracture", which is broken metacarpals in the hand, so I'm not about to start any type of fighting sport that involves punching or getting punched. Not only does getting punched in the face cause things like becoming blind, but it also causes severe and sometimes permanent head injuries. I think submission wrestling is a much better alternative.

Anyway, I'd like to get competing in both powerlifting and BJJ sometime this year or next year. 5'8" 175lbs is a reasonable height/weight for both sports. As I mentioned earlier, I am going to try to hit the weight room tomorrow. The weight loss comes first, then comes in the DeFranco style training geared towards BJJ.

Just thought I'd update in my log the new sport I've decided to pick up!

Monday March 12, 2012: Upper Body, horizontal emphasis, vertical maintenance

Session #1

Bench Press
Bar x 5
95lbs x 5
135lbs x 3 x 5

Bent Over Rows
Bar x 5
95lbs x 3 x 5

Incline Press
115lbs x 3 x 10

Pullup
Weight x 12 reps (total)

Parallel Dips
Weight x 1 rep

Notes: This workout was ridiculously easy. I mean it was just basically like there wasn't even weight on the bar, but starting with ridiculously light weight and adding progressive resistance is the best way to make a big comeback in the gym. Next week, each exercise will go up +10lbs. Tomorrow is a lower body session.

Thanks. Yeah, last time I did this it was two years of absence from the training scenery. I started lifting with a buddy again and ended up being back to bench pressing 225 for reps and overhead pressing 145 for reps in like 2.5 months of progressive training. Infact, I even hit a personal record of 250lbs for 5 reps within about 4 months of training, so I'm really hoping for the best here.

Keep checking in guys, I'll probably be hitting PR's before you know it!

Well, day one of the keto diet didn't go so well. I've found it hard to consume six boiled eggs in a single day. I'm probably going to find in the future six boiled eggs per day everyday for a while will even be virtually impossible.

I'm going to have to modify this diet up a little bit. It was raining yesterday here, by the way, so I will have to wait another week to go and get my weights from that guys house. I ended up going to the gym and training yesterday to get my workout in.

Lets try this again.

Nutrition
#1- 1 steak, 2 eggs, 1 piece of toast with butter
#2- Whey protein, Olive oil, 1 cup of pepperoni
#3- 3 strips of bacon, 2 sausage planks, salad with green vegetables, Ranch
#4- chicken (seasoned), bell peppers, 2 handful of almonds and peanuts
#5- Tuna, mayonnaise, 1 handful of almonds and peanuts, fish oils

Supplements
#1- 1 scoop of whey protein per day mixed with Olive Oil
#2- Mega-Men, 1-a-day multivitamin
#3- 4 tablets of fish oils, daily
#4- BCAA's, 1 scoop post workout (should I get the pills or powder?)

Same routine, three days focusing on two upper body days and one lower body.

Maybe this time I'll find this diet is suitable.

Looks good hombre. Eggs are usually easier when I smash them up and add sour cream, mustard and seasoning.
